My daughter is at Birmingham Uni and lives in Selly Oak. This venue is ideal when we go down to see her. Nice clean accommodation and a good hearty breakfast at a very reasonable price. Would recommend to anyone on a short visit to see loved ones.

Perfect for a one night stay. Stayed here on business and was perfectly functionable. It's quite far out of the city centre and it does kind of feel like student halls, a little shabby but perfectly comfortable. The food offering is very reasonable priced, tasty but nothing overly special. The bar area is small and cosy. Would stay again but... More

Stayed for one night in December, it was clean, warm and quiet, it's nothing fancy but it's also cheap, for a one night stay it was great. Clean bathroom, good warm shower and nice towels. The bed was comfy and the breakfast was also good.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic - a huge variety of freshly cooked tasty food. The room was clean and spacious and I had a fabulous view of the grounds from my bedroom. WIFI was good. The TV channels were limited.

Very comfy bed, nice warm room. Good service, breakfast was tasty. Plenty of choice to suit everyone. Good size rooms so there's space to breathe. Found it strange that reception was across the road from the rooms, but no complaints at all! Would stay here again.

Stayed for 2 nights when I was doing some work at the uni. The hotel itself is converted from old uni accommodation so it's got a few grand looking houses and the grounds are nice. The included breakfast was also great and the room was spacious and pleasant. For the price and location you can't go wrong. Next time I'm... More

If you're visiting the university of Birmingham, this is the ideal location, the city centre is £10 by taxi. It is not known as "VenueBirmingham" or "Conference Park" but rather as "Lucas House" in this address; you might find difficulty locating it if you look for the first two names. The hardware is a bit tired but the team working... More

Thank you for the kind words: it is always wonderful to have our staff recognised in this way, and I agree whole-heartedly: staff are the heart of hospitality! As for your other genuine concerns: we do try and let people know that the Conference Park reception is in Lucas House... - but it seems that our efforts are falling short.... More
